Lavington Hill staff were very gracious and kind to me during my stay. They were able to arrange for a driver for me for two days and make reservations at the David Sheldrick site to adopt an elephant. In addition the chef prepared an outstanding red snapper meal for me my last evening.

From my first enquiry I could not have had better service or a more professional one. Lucy and Beatrice are to be commended. The guesthouse is difficult to find but they will always arrange transport. A beautiful house that looks colonial, yet was actually built in 2002. The owner Anderson is a charming host. Food was lovely and made to... More

This is one of my favourite places to stay at in Nairobi. Have stayed there about four times (each time for about a couple of weeks). The rooms are tastefully done and comfortable with basic amenities (no A/C, ok Wi-fi). The property is beautiful and quiet, despite being located quite centrally. The food can get a bit repetitive if you... More

Lavington Hill House is a large neo-colonial building in lush gardens situated in the Lavington area of Nairobi. It is not easy to find without detailed directions as the house has no name board outside and is difficult to see behind large black gates. It is a private house where the owner and his children live in a separate wing.... More
